A New College Course Focuses On the Life of Selena
It looks like one school has finally decided that the life of Selena should be studied, and it's about time.
The School of Journalism and Media Studies at San Diego State University will offer a new course that focuses on Selena's life.
From our good friends at Tejano Nation:
“Students also need access to content in media landscapes to better understand the relationship between mediated representations and Latinx identity formation and maintenance,” Rodriguez said. “Speaking about these issues through the life of a well-known and visible celebrity allows students to utilize both pop culture and Latinx culture to deconstruct and interrogate the significance and broader meaning of minority-based mediated content.”
Unfortunately, you would have to go to San Diego to take this course in Selena Studies, but maybe one of our great Texas schools will offer something similar soon.
